The spotlight is on oil sands development in Canada and it is a perfect storm of economic, social, and environmental realities, part fact, part fiction and promises - clearly affecting us all. It's a situation that calls out to citizens to educate themselves and listen to the voices of sustainability who are speaking from an integrated, whole systems understanding of our world and speak on behalf of Mother Earth. Fundamentally, it's a place and from that place, home to indigenous peoles, comes the Keystone XL pipeline expansion project, which, if approved, would carry heavy crude from Alberta, Canada, to refineries in the United States.
